It’s official everyone! I passed my Master’s Comprehensive Exam (taken last November….I love the efficiency of my program) and have been titled a Master of Education. HA! Isn’t that funny? Despite texting several people requesting they now refer to me as “Master Karolyn”, it really doesn’t feel like that significant of an accomplishment. If only because my school district only acknowledges it with a less than $500 increase a year. Which works out to about $25 extra a month…I guess I can go grab a meal with that though! But, that pay raise only goes into effect after my Master’s actually posts. Probably yet another few months! Thanks for those of you who responded appropriately to the texts, i.e. ‘Master Kar’, ‘Master Sister’, ‘Master McMastress’ (my grandparents thought of that one), ‘Master K’ and even to those of you who weren’t as receptive to the suggestion, i.e. “Not a chance [to address me as Master anything]”. Too bad this wasn’t a Master’s in something I truly wanted…or I could cross it off “the list”. I might just do that anyways!
